Wolves have sealed a deal for Belgian international Geoffrey Mujangi-Bia.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder comes in from Belgian side Charleroi on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal.
Mujangi-Bia arrived in England on Wednesday for a medical, and now both clubs have confirmed the deal.
"This is the ideal solution for Geoffrey," Charleroi chief Mogi Bayat stated.
"We hope he can prove himself in the strongest league in Europe."
DR Congo-born Mujangi-Bia has two caps for Belgium, making his debut in May last year.
He could now be set for his debut for Wolves in their FA Cup clash with Crystal Palace this weekend.
There is a chance that he will feature in Saturday's FA Cup tie with Crystal Palace if the clearance comes through and Wolves chief Mick McCarthy was delighted to have sealed his signature.
"We're very pleased to have signed Geoffrey," said McCarthy.
"He's a player who Taff (Ian Evans, Wolves scout) has been tracking for a while and will add some creativity and firepower to our squad.
"He's an attacking midfielder who can play on the right or the left as well as centrally."
